Hit the Hardwood With the Y

Play ball with the folks who invented the sport! Y youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families, and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image, and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.

Families are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches—as well as being their kid’s greatest fan. 

Registration is open now for summer leagues and programs! Registration for fall leagues and programs opens June 15 at 6:00 am.
